Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a hit since its launch late last week, and the game is having a major impact on the mobile release Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.

Sensor Tower data reveals that player spending on March 21 came in at $253,000, which is the game’s best day since March 2. The mobile game has so far earned $3.6 million this month.

Downloads have seen a big increase month-over-month, going from 520,000 in February to 1.3 million as of March 21. During the week of March 16 alone, there were 670,000 installs for an 87 percent week-on-week increase.


New animals from Animal Crossing: New Horizons are arriving in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp today. They include Audie, Judy, Sherb, Raymond, Reneigh, Cyd, Dom, and Megan.

Players can obtain animal maps via souvenirs from exporting to specific islands in Gulliver’s Ship. Animals can also be met by exploring and completing animal maps in Blather’s Treasure Pack.

It’s also worth noting that you can order some Special Items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Meanwhile, you’ll get Leaf Tickets to use in Pocket Camp.

Hello my happy helpers and fortune cookies! This week on NEP, Oni Dino and Galen are talking The Game Awards, the industry and mobile monetization schemes. We chat about the nominees, snubs, predictions for Nintendo and past instances—new Smash DLC fighter? Metroid? Bayonetta? Who knows! Let’s keep it logical, though.
Then we tackle Animal Crossing Pocket Camp getting a subscription service with a very opinionated argument over if free-to-play games like these should even be considered games. We finish things off with some Pokemon talk on the new designs, and the Gizmodo situation in our listener mail segment.
